    Question In search for ICD-9 code assistance...
    Exam Training Packages
    I'm EXTREMELY tired today. I'm having trouble focusing and I need to find a code for a DX that I'm unfamiliar with.

    Can anyone help me with the code for "cortical kidney nodules"? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Just couldn't make it easy (easier anyway) and call it a cyst could they? I would go with 593.89, I think.

    And before anyone lectures me on the difference between cysts and nodules, that was a (lame attempt at a) joke!
